The fact that your system gets unresponsive even to the point where you
experience delays when moving the cursor indicates that the system is
'busy' inside driver code. And since you're updating, that indicates
either the network driver or the harddisk driver.

So: try updating those drivers. If that doesn't help, run a harddrive
check utility - it might be due to bad sectors that the hd drivers are
behaving badly.
